DESCRIPTION: This popular series of books follows the publishers format 
of lavish illustration with concise text. The author has provided a 
unique impression of the Union Army, using early field photographs that 
include some coloured photographs - Recommended.

The Union Army was generally well equipped and dressed. As most of the 
textile and heavy industry was in areas loyal to the Union, equipping 
troops was somewhat easier than for the Confederate Forces. It was still 
a hard life and there were periods when pay and supplies lagged behind.

The outstanding selection of images provides a vivid picture, not only 
of the soldiers, uniforms and equipment, but also of the conditions in 
which they served. This book is one of the finest presentations of the 
Union soldiers, certainly since a number of lavishly illustrated books, 
mainly using wood cuts, engravings and art work that were published to 
commemorate the centenary of the Civil War in 1965.

The books in this series combine to provide an unrivalled illustrated 
account of the American Soldier.
